Easter Monday Family Race Day
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | February 26, 2020
To celebrate the upcoming release of the new movie Dream Horse, which is based on the true story of a horse named Dream Alliance, the legendary horse himself will return 10 years later as Guest of Honor and parade in the winner’s enclosure at Chepstow Race Course on Monday, April 13, 2020. He is one of the most celebrated horses in racing, bred on an allotment, who went on to win the biggest race in Wales, the Coral Welsh Grand National, 2009. The retired champ will hopefully be available to meet his fans throughout the day.
Dream Horse is inspired by Dream Alliance’s historic win and stars Damian Lewis, Toni Collette, Owen Teale and Joanna Page. Get ready for the feel-good film of the spring, as Dream Horse hits UK cinemas on April 17, shortly after Chepstow’s family fun day to coincide with the launch of the movie.
Chepstow’s gates open at 12:00 p.m., with first race at 2:00 p.m. and last race at 5:30 p.m. Children aged 17 and under enter free. To join in on the popular Easter Monday Family Race Day and for more information about tickets, please visit Chepstow Racing and Events here.
